Female Vampires have been pulling crowds and delivering thrills ever since cinema first developed. Whether in awful B-movies or big productions, vampires have seen countless portrayals onscreen that have become cliches. However, in the case of over-the-top eroticism and racy seductiveness of the undead ladies, we are barely complaining. Some females vampires are incredibly sensuous and charismatic. Regardless of whether their appeal came from their tempting costumes, their ferocity or their accent, we must admit that these vampires made the movies infinitely more entertaining. But just in case you were wondering what is a female vampire called, your options are: vampyre or a vampirette. Here is the list of top sexiest female vampires in movies.
12. The Vampire Lovers (1970) – Ingrid Pitt as Carmilla Karnstein
Carmilla Karnstein is a blood-sucking lesbian beauty with a taste for the bosoms of impressionable young women. Played by Ingrid Pitt, this sexy vampire meticulously lays her web, enticing young girls who fall for her charms. But before they know it, she digs her fangs deep into their breasts. Who could deny Ingrid Pitt, after all?
11. Bordello of Blood (1996) – Angie Everhart as Lilith
Not only is Lilith a vampire seductress, but she also runs a brothel where all ladies are vampires too. Their bordello brings them business and the blood of lustful men. Moreover, this film is a complete comedy. We will never forget Angie Everhart in a cheerleader costume singing – ‘ 2, 4, 6, 8 … you can watch me masturbate’.
10. Vampires (1998) – Sheryl Lee as Katrina
Sheryl Lee, of Twin Peaks fame, plays a vampire prostitute in this John Carpenter flick. Her quiet beauty translates to Katrina’s seductive allure, even when she’s not trying. This movie follows a team of vampire-hunters trying to find a relic that has the power to let vampires endure sunlight.
9. Vampire Academy (2014) – Zoey Deutch as Rose Hathaway
This fantasy-comedy film from 2014 is forgettable to say the least. However, its saving grace is the main vampire played by Zoey Deutch, known for Richard Linklater‘s ‘Everybody Wants Some!!’ Rose is not the cliched fierce, bloodthirsty devil but an extraordinarily ‘human’ and beautiful Dhampir (half-vampire).
8. The Lost Boys (1987) – Jami Gertz as Star
‘The Lost Boys’ is an enjoyable vampire flick in many respects. However, the most prominent image the film leaves is that of the exceptionally beautiful Jami Gertz’s character ‘Star’. While she is a vampire for the most part, few people would complain if she took them to her lair. Luckily, she returns to normal by the end.
7. The Fearless Vampire Killers (1967) – Sharon Tate as Sarah Shagal
Roman Polanski‘s 1967 horror-comedy flick ‘The Fearless Vampire Killers’ made not only him fall in love with Sharon Tate, but also every other person who saw the film. Whenever she comes onscreen, viewers cant help but look at her and nothing else. Sarah Shagal is revealed to be transformed into a vampire only at the end, but she has an erotic appeal throughout the film.
6. Byzantium (2012) – Gemma Arterton as Clara
Anything with Gemma Arterton in it is great. In ‘Byzantium’, she plays a vampire trying to protect herself and her daughter from other dreadful vampires, and in the process, she starts a makeshift brothel. Clara is quite literally a femme fatale and her sexy appearance enriches this film infinitely.
5. Vampyros Lesbos (1971) – Soledad Miranda as Countess Nadine Carody
Like Ingrid Pitt in ‘The Vampire Lovers’, Soledad Miranda’s vampire seductress Nadine has a perpetual thirst for female blood. She lures young women through her racy lesbian act in a nightclub on a remote island. Countess Nadine is the epitome of the seductive vampiress whom nobody can refuse.
4. Queen of the Damned (2002) – Aaliyah as Queen Akasha
Aaliyah as the vicious yet sultry vampire Queen Akasha might be the first name that comes to mind when you think of female vampire. Her incredibly revealing costume coupled with her sensuous demeanor make her one of the sexiest vampires ever. Queen Akasha dancing to rock music, then proceeding to feed on a raw heart are images that are truly unforgettable.
3. Underworld (2003) – Kate Beckinsale as Selene
The ‘Underworld’ movie series is one of the most popular vampire-based anthologies ever. Probably the biggest reason for its appeal is the divine Kate Beckinsale‘s leather-clad vampire-warrior, Selene. Even otherwise, Selene stands in this list because she isn’t as one-dimensional as almost every other vampiress. Kate Beckinsale will make you want to watch the whole five part series, and without regrets too.
2. From Dusk Till Dawn (1996) – Salma Hayek as Santanico Pandemonium
Salma Hayek in ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ is the quintessential vampiress-vixen. This is one of the best vampire movies of all time and Salma Hayek in a two-piece seducing a whole crowd is one of the sexiest scenes. Santanico Pandemonium is the kind of buxom erotic creature that we would gladly give ourselves up for.

1. Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992) – Monica Bellucci as Dracula’s Bride
A lot of people would gladly watch anything with Monica Bellucci in it. Her incredibly sultry and gorgeous yet equally fierce character in ‘Dracula’ will compel you to re-watch it multiple times. Even though the movie features a stellar cast with Gary Oldman, Winona Ryder and Anthony Hopkins in it, we can hardly think of anything but Dracula’s Bride. Who wouldn’t want a date with her, even if they had to face Dracula himself at the end of it?
